New York at Boston 4pm

New York Islander Fan Central | 10/04/2008 07:24:00 AM |
Bruins website: Announced today's game will be televised on NESN for those who have access to that station.

Boston Globe: Kevin Paul Dupont has a little state of the Bruins with back to back games Saturday and Sunday.

Bruins website radio coverage stations here if any radio/webcast coverage is also available for today's game.

My guess is in New York we are only going to get the John Bishop updates from the Bruins website here we had in Shelton and Moncton but this game is being played in whatever the Bruins are calling the home arena this year so I put up the radio sites just in case.

Boston travels to Washington for a game on Sunday to wrap it's preseason.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Only Newsday knows if they will be sending a reporter to Boston or Florida.

I do have to write for those who take ITV for granted with all these interviews, features and game highlights (for starters) how the Bruins version has virtually nothing from preseason. Not the teams fault Cablevision holding back TV or even webcast coverage when it's available to the club they have gone above and beyond for us to see it.

As for Saturday's game, I would guess if Weight, Guerin, Park or Bailey can play or targeting opening night we they will at this point or in Florida Monday. No law Sillinger could not be cleared either based on his earlier comments.

Okposo, Sim, if healthy should be back in the lineup today with Hillen, Sudgen, Streit, Meyer. Bridgeport has parts of three clubs in camp so we could even see another recall or two if the Isles run short.

Fair to write another game for Smith, Fritz, Lee, Jackman, Colliton and others to get a look and make an impression, points keep finding Trevor Smith on a roster not scoring in big numbers.

Andy Hilbert making a statement to keep his spot with hard work and a goal.

Does Rick DiPietro backup or does Danis backup what should be MacDonald's game? Have to think Danis made a good statement last night that he can play at this level but if MacDonald gets bombed, ejected or injured do you risk putting DiPietro into a live game before Monday by having him dress?

Scott Gordon coaches in the Bruins home arena after interviewing for the job last year, Boston's gm Peter Chiarelli showed a lot of class in letting him interview with Garth Snow with no strings after what he went through with Ottawa.

More at some point after the game, will likely not be available at 4pm Saturday.

Mr Botta's new show on Espn 1050 at 10am will have the Islander coach, some more on today's game and do a great job.
